It seems like he's become a bit of a "My first dark humour" starter kit now with his constant need to explain his jokes and how offensive they must be (to who?)

In the words of Frankie Boyle "I don't need Ricky Gervais to tell me God doesn't exist when I've seen Derek get recommissioned twice."
You've obviously not seen how much crap he gets on Twitter.

ive been a huge fan of Gervais for his affinity to animals especially Dogs. What he does to try and save them and end the asian festivals amazes me.

Hes also pretty damn funny. Especially his take on religion.

Nahhh he literally searches his own name in the Twitter search tool to find people talking about him, it's not like he even gets sent most of the abuse lol, he's legit usually the one getting most offended at someone's opinion there. If he really didn't care why does he spend so much time trying to find little people talking about him when he's got so much money, I find that obsession he has with trying to dig out people who don't find him funny online(and his jump to a conclusion this must be because they're offended) really cringe too, it really doesn't scream "I don't care" like he constantly tries to tell us lol. (it is kinda funny how desperate he is with that stuff now tho)

It's at the point where people just wanting to talk about his work have to type "R*cky G*rvais" so he doesn't appear randomly and get upset at them Twitter, gone crazy in his old age imo.

(if anyone likes cringe humour though, which ironically is unintentionally the main source of humour I get from him now, Extra's and UK Office are arguably the staples of the genre.)

Each to their own. He's a comedy legend IMO.

I agree on that bit, but mostly because of his pioneering of the mockumentary with Stephen Merchant, and his pioneering of the podcast with SM + Karl Pilkington (And ofc the animated series that spawned from it), but his stand up & recent stuff just doesn't gel with me much.
